well if your desktop is wireless then YEs it is a wireless issue wireless technology just isnt very reliable yet what kind of wireless card is in the desktop? not a linksys pci card im hoping lol ive had trouble with this i tried 2 different wireless cards same issue went with the wireless external adapter and dont have anymore intermittent issues could be due to interference though in the area of your desktop or something obstructing the antenna or even could be xp if youre using a linksys card i had to remove the linksys software and just use the windows wireless setup to solve this issue a few times
I am operating a two computer network.
The Fujitsu laptop has XP Pro, the Sony desktop uses XP Home. All the XP updates are installed.
Both computers are connected wirelessly to a Microsoft router and then a Belkin broadband modem to the Internet.
The laptop works flawlessly however, the Sony desktop will lose the Internet connection every few minutes. After a short while it will reconnect.
I do not think its a wireless problem since I can still connect to the Sony through the wireless router.
Any advice would be much appreciated. I am fairly computer literate but I would need some guidance if error reports etc. are needed.
